    Jay Park was a recent guest on the ‘The Glow Up Podcast,’ where he talked about all kinds of stuff. What will undoubtedly get the most attention, though, starts at around 17:32 when he talks about his experience as a trainee, which came under JYP Entertainment before debuting in 2PM.

    Jay says the training killed a lot of his passion and compared it to programming, “It helped in a lot of ways, but it also killed my passion and creativity in a lot of ways as well. It’s kind of like programming almost. Sing it like this, do it like this. So like you lose your individuality.” He went on to say that the training caused him to stop listening to music and writing lyrics.

    Later, he talked about trainees getting hit over making mistakes, “The culture in itself was kinda like when you get certain lyrics wrong or you get a certain dance move wrong they would literally hit you. That’s kinda like the Korean way, you know? It’s not like that now, it’s much better now, but back then [if you got a dance move wrong] they were like, “You mothafucka!” (Laughs) They wouldn’t do that to me because I was very good at dancing, but I would see this dude next to me and he was getting some shit wrong and he getting his ass whooped.

    While some are busy defending JYPE, this should come as no surprise to people who didn’t have their heads buried in the sand. Fucked up? Yeah, but the military-esque training, complete with corporal punishment was what I expected. I mean the companies never specify what kind of family they are, after all.

    Even including all that, though, the whole podcast was generally just chill and worth a listen, especially if you’re a fan of Jay.

    Well as he said it's better now. Still can't believe they ever hit someone though. I can't believe it was actual hitting though.. more like a slight .. ya know... slap on the ass like friends do or smth idk lol.

    Not exactly surprising, my Korean classmates told me that a lot of schools used to do corporal punishments (hitting with a thin stick to the palms or back of the calf's, etc) but at least its better now. From my memory I know that hitting punishment is now banned in schools.

    i've watched that documentary too, it was 9muses' then leader, she got slapped by a rolled up newspaper or something, it looked like she was used to it by the lack of a reaction. the thing is, i doubt they (big companies at least) hit any of their trainees anymore. if anything it'll be more common around smaller companies. but i'm sure there'll be laws, punishments if it's ever found out

    In Asia, many kids are whopped every day and still grew up healthily in all ways. Myself included. Don't judge it's culture just because you don't understand it.

    If you listen to the whole podcast (which I didn't do at first and went all judgmental, sorry Jay), Jay said it in the most laid back way, like its a normal thing. Even he wasn't exactly seeing that as a negative thing. As he said, the Korean way. It is obvious that there is a difference in culture so you can't really say it's wrong either.

    Everyone somehow imagines a full on beating till blood is everywhere when he said "hit".
    :sketchyk:

    Even Jay eventually said he'd never change that experience he had in JYP. Trainee days in their generation were crap, Jay, 2PM, 2AM, they are all vocal about it. But that is the thing about these guys, they are all pretty chill about it even when they say it's crap. So if I judge the training system when those guys that actually went through it are chill af about it, I'm the big wimp.

    People need to watch 2PM and 2AM's pre-debut show some of them physically fought each other and wound up bloody....JYP's training back in the day was no joke.

    Lol I am not surprised. It's not just Korea though. Asian culture is normally like that. If you get something wrong or do something, they hit you.

    if I remember correctly, SM Town used to hit their artists. Andy from Shinhwa got punched in the face apparently. Minwoo and Junjin got their fair share of punishments too. During the DBSK training period, I think it changed they were just scolded savagely/had to squat or do push ups and they have to write a long ass apology letters and a long explanation on what they did wrong. I think nowadays, SM Town is nicer to their trainees (they still get scolded and have to write long ass essays) but they also threaten them that they will never debut or get dropped out if they keep on messing up.

    True. As an Asian I don't appreciate westerners coming to our country telling us "You can't practice that, your child will be scarred forever". I don't even have physical scars and I got hit by my parents when I was a kid a lot because I won't come home by 7. I actually grew up well and still love my parents to death.

    Westerners imagines that we get beat up when we say our parents 'hit' us, when really, it hurts for 5 minutes and the consequence is that you'd never try to piss off your parents again.

    Yeah no kidding. People take it too far sometimes. Of course abuse is never okay, but some western people act like if you smack your child once, you're a psychopath and should be locked up forever. A little discipline is not a bad thing.

    He's right. I heard training to be a Second Gen idol was brutal but it's better now, not necessarily because they care about the trainees but the skyrocketing of social media and smartphones make it a lot easier to get caught and cause a public scandal of abuse.
